Album: Camille, Music Hole (Charisma)

The French pop experimentalist's latest won't make new converts but if the vocalised rhythm-generating of 'Le Fil' made you smile, it's this trick which gets moved centre-stage here, with traditional instruments playing only a minimal role.

The bold results occasionally irritate but are mostly inspired. On "Money Note" – a fun and funky piss-take of Whitney and Mariah's need to hit those impossibly high notes – Camille eventually hits a note herself which will make your dog's ears bleed. And talking of dogs, she also sadly informs us that cats and dogs are not our friends, which I refuse to accept.
